Attention enrolled students in Spring 2017 session 

We do not have the bookstore pricing for some items. Those are highlighted in yellow. The worksheets titled HIT ASMCS, and CIM, list the required texts in for each of these programs. The worksheet titled Required Courses lists all the courses in our department, and shows which courses are common to the various programs. Please review the two worksheets available by clicking HIT/CIM Texts Fall 2017. These contain lists of all the required texts for the HIT and CIM courses. The sheet titled Sorted by Course lists the required texts by course. It displays the required texts in ascending order by the course number, and includes the ISBN and the estimated pricing for the new and used copies. 

The worksheet titled Sorted by Text lists the required texts in ascending order by author/title of the text. It also gives the estimated pricing for new and used copies, and provides a summary list of all courses in which the text is used. 
Further information is detailed at the top of each worksheet.
